    ugh, trig identities are a drag. Even after deriving them myself I simply CANNOT seem to memorize them

    spread it so we have (cosa)^2+(cosb)^2+2(cosa)(cosb)+(sina)^2+(sinb)^2+2(sina)(sinb) =2+2cos(a-b)

    (cosa)^2+(sina)^2=1 (cosb)^2+(sinb)^2=1 (cosa)(cosb)+(sina)(sinb)=cos(a-b)

    Continuing from where @AndrewNJ left, \[2(1+\cos(a-b))\] now we know that \[1 + \cos 2a = 2 \cos^2 a\] Now try :D

    = \[2(1+\cos 2\frac{(a-b)}{2})\] Now we have a identity, \[1 + \cos 2x = 2 \cos^2 x\] in your case, \[x = \frac{a-b}{2}\] Now try
